Doctor Who celebrations continue apace in Australia, as BBC Worldwide announces the arrival of its first dedicated Doctor Who e-commerce site with free delivery Australia-wide.
Fans who want to mark the show’s 50th anniversary with a keepsake or a gift can now get direct access to the latest and most popular products at the official BBC Worldwide Australia website: www.doctorwho50store.com.au.
Over 400 clothing, merchandise, toys and DVD products from the world’s longest running sci-fi series will be available to purchase including:
- Gadgets, from Vortex Manipulators to a nano-recorder injector.
- Clothing, from Dalek and TARDIS bathrobes to the iconic Fourth Doctor’s 12 foot scarf.
- Toys, including a talking plush TARDIS, an inflatable dalek and a vast array of action figures.
In addition, new and exclusive products will be added to the site as soon as they become available.
Other features of the site include: the ability to search products by Doctor as well as by price bracket; recommendations based on browsing; and the opportunity to sign up to a Doctor Who newsletter. A special Time Lord Express service is also offered for fans who can’t wait to get their hands on their Doctor Who goodies.
The e-commerce site follows the successful launch of the Doctor Who pop-up shop in Newtown, Sydney, which proved immensely popular, with fans lining up for over three hours for the opening day. The shop has been so successful that it closed after just 25 days, due to so much of the product selling out. Now fans can find many of these products on the new online store.
"The Doctor Who pop-up shop reinforced just how passionate our fans are and we’re thrilled to be able to offer them the convenience of a dedicated Doctor Who e-commerce site, which will allow us to connect directly with our consumers" said Elie Mansour, BBC Worldwide ANZ’s Manager Licensed Consumer Products.
